Errol is our son. At 2 1/2 years old, Errol was involved in a fatal accident. We, his Mom and Dad, have struggled to navigate our way through the crippling grief that comes with losing a child. The pain runs deeper than the deepest ocean. Errol is a kind, compassionate sensitive old soul who made everyone in the room smile. He loved grilled cheese sandwiches, airplanes and rides in his Radio Flyer wagon. Adults marveled at his depth of compassion at such a young age. I wish that we all could have seen the world through Errol's eyes. And then it hit us. If we can't help ourselves, let's do our best to help someone else. Not only to honor Errol, but to hopefully ease another human's suffering. This is what he would want. For other kids to be happy and inquisitive just as he was.
We hope to change the lives of children and adults in meaningful ways. We want to give children experiential learning that teaches them empathy, spirit and resiliency. We want to arm children with knowledge and compassion from the very start and teach them to reciprocate what they've learned to their community in the form of service. The Errol Conrad Thornton Foundation is based in the ideal that our collective purpose in this life is to help each other through it. Giving feels good. You can't deny it. And who better to give to than our most vulnerable little citizens, children. We stand for inclusion of ALL children, no matter what. Please help us honor Errol's beautiful, loving spirit. Thank you.
Love and Gratitude,
Glenn and Season
